Emmersion Learning, the Lehi, Utah-based creator of the TrueNorth Speaking Test, raised $600k in seed financing.
Backers included Zylun Global and Access to Education, a Silicon Valley edtech accelerator.
The company intends to use the funds to continue to develop and distribute its TrueNorth Speaking Test.
Led by CEO Joe Tomco and Chief Product Officer Jacob Burdis, Emmersion Learning provides the TrueNorth Speaking Test, which allows organizations to test learners’ oral language proficiency automatically through any web-connected device.
The test automates speaking testing by leveraging speech recognition models, advanced statistical algorithms, and time-tested linguistic and psychometric methodologies.
